    i've heard from a few people at toyota that alot of the new vitz have elecronics issues. personally i think the new one is very nice but i like the shape of the older one (though it has become a bit too common - which is good in a way since you can get parts now).

    well i think the interior of the new vitz model is much better i thinkit looks better too,
    drive wise there isnt much noticible difference.
    one thing i found annoying in the new model was the engine noise,
    the old model has better cabin soundproofing

    i would choose to stick with the old one
    cause ull have to put around 150k extra depending on the model u have

    I am interested in Vitz but iam afraid of parts and maintenance. Vitz 99 to 04 Parts are very expensive or just like Suzuki? Many japanese cars are coming nowadays from Japan and their running is too much bcoz digital meters are also tempered. Is there any reliable dealer in Lahore where tempering is not done. Plz help and guide. thanks

    But every dealer has different prices and what about resale. One of my friend got platz 600,000 and he sold it in 3.90 lacs as its running was tempered, engine was not working properly so he suffered great loss. Plz tell me any reliable dealers and Toyota people can maintain it or not. I want to ask that Parts are cheaper or not as compared to Suzuki
